I'm not sure the Installfest (where time is limited, and installs can take
a while) is the best place to be demoing flavors of linux.

At least, not to the people who have RSVPd and brought their hardware in.
Maybe we could have a machine up for non-RSVPd people to play with,
hands-on, without any assistance from the busy installfest volunteers.

Then they can RSVP and come again, to the next month's installfest, to
actually get something installed.

And I'm happy to link to as many of those as you'd like me to,
on the IF webpage. :)
